Are you sure this is legit? I don't see the Freep covering it anywhere. /s

The Michigan review is one line from a decent haiku.

Nice area. You can rent bikes and ride a paved bike path all the way to Traverse City.
Also, if you don't have a problem with eating cute baby cows, take a drive and have some veal here:
And there's this:
And this distillery has free tastings, and a horseradish-infused vodka that makes the best Bloody Marys for tailgates:

Michigan law grad, somewhere-else-undergrad, Rhodes Scholar of bad posture and bad timing.
If I could, I would give every regular reader of this blog, and every Michigan fan I know, an honorary degree. In fact, maybe I will just pass out honorary degrees to all who kneel before the three-foot Bo Bobblehead at the NE corner of Hoover on Greene (aka Buddy Sykes Way) on September 12.
With apologies to any aggressive non-believers, we all worship in the Big House, and it's big enough for all of us.
|15 weeks 17 hours ago||I disagree. For starters,||
For starters, to be a bandwagon hopper, you would have to start rooting for some other team just because it is successful. I know several people who have given up their season tickets, stopped attending or even watching games, etc., nearly all of whom have noted the crappy quality of team play. None of them now root for the Buckeyes, or the Spartans, or any other college football team. But that's what being a bandwagon hopper is, right?
Besides, the team's poor play was very likely tied in with all the other "legitimate" reasons you may not have a problem with, like a destructive, control-freak AD whose ego alienated pretty much everyone and prevented him from hiring a competent coach.

I couldn't drive a school bus. The risk of getting a heart attack is too great:
Totally with you on mowing lawns, though.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Totally agree with this one.||
Totally agree with this one. I got held back in fourth grade . . . twice. And look at me: now I drive the school bus!

Man, that third leg tear is the worst.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||I agree with most everything||
I agree with most everything you said, except about the quote; I don't even know if it was stupid. You should do your best no matter how the game or the season is going. If Funchess was not giving it his all, then shame on him, but that quote tells me nothing as to Funchess' effort level.

Awesome day so far: first my boss pulls a Reverse-Lumbergh and gives me the day off, and then I get to enjoy my free time with a great game.

Dollars to doughnuts that the 49ers pushed the negative media treatment Harbaugh received. That happened with the Boston Red Sox and their former GM, manager and players.

Thank you for posting.

Thank you for mentioning that. What a terrible call by the Blazers.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||That one still blows my mind.||
That one still blows my mind. If the Pistons had acquired Anthony, would they have acquired 'Sheed? The Pistons would have had Anthony, Okur and Williamson at power forward. Man, the ball-hogging and porous D would have been something.

You mean the season, right? If so, then me, too.

Why does Al Sharpton's flip flop stink so much, and what happened to the other one?

I agree completely. The "step" was not terrible by itself, but context matters, and Suh should have avoided it, for the reasons you stated.
|30 weeks 3 days ago||Apologies if this was||
Apologies if this was mentioned already, but I thought Barnwell's take on Harbaugh's exit today was great. if nothing else, he acknowledges that Harbaugh is just an outstanding coach. Nice that ESPN/Grantland isn't totally ridiculous:

I'm surprised that "that just happened!" has not been quoted yet today.
